Around the (blogging) World in 8 Posts

First….
An update from my bathroom mini-makeover.  The reviews are in and they were positive!  Mr. Brown’s comment “It looks so fancy.”  I believe this was his code for “it looks nice, hope I don’t break anything.”  And my 3-year old’s response was “Mama, you forgot to do ALL the bathrooms!  You didn’t do MY bathroom!”  Apparently I need to do a non-breakable version for my kids!  Hmmm…. ideas are brewing!

These are a few posts around my blog reader that really captured my interest this week:

1. Valentine’s Day decor @ 320 Sycamore – I’ve been working on my own Valentine’s Day decor this week (look for pics soon) and this was so adorable I had to share.

2. The 4-Week Menu Plan @ Robin’s Nest – My friend Robin is a happy homemaker and a school teacher.  And this adorable and functional meal plan is something I could learn a lot from!

3. In Today’s Economy @ Deliver Away Debt

4. Winter Wonderland (& cupcakes!) @ Domestic Simplicity – My friend Lillian is an amazing mother and has such great days with her kids.  There were about 5 I wanted to copy this week!
